How Much Does it Cost to Play in the League?
- League dues are $60.00 and cover prizes for events
- Patron Card ($100 + tax) or Club Membership (see Pro Shop). Patrons receive a $6.00 discount on the $43.00 greens fees for 18 holes, so the card pays for itself after 17 rounds.
- Handicap Card ($28.00) if needed. League members must have an official USGA handicap, but do not need to hold it through Fox Hollow. if you have your handicap at another club, give your GHIN number to the Events Chair so she can get your current index for handicapped events.
- Greens Fees ($37.00 + tax per round) for patrons.
- Play is scheduled Saturday mornings around 7:00 through 8:00 am, depending on the time of the season.
- Sign up sheets will be posted on the information board at least two (2) weeks in advance of the scheduled playing date.
- If the tee times are full, contact the pro sop to see if there are any cancellations.
- The Pro Shop has a 24-hour cancellation policy. You MUST notify the Pro Shop (763-428-4468 ext. 7) NO LATER than 24 hours in advance of the event if you are canceling or you will be responsible to pay for the tee time.
- The Saturday 18-Hole Women’s League recommends that you cancel by Wednesday prior to the event to allow other players the opportunity to participate.
- We will pay in light to moderate rain. Wash-outs and lightning will cancel play
- Call the Pro Shop when play may be questionable – it may be terrible in your neighborhood, yet still nice enough to play at Fox Hollow
- At the beginning and end of the season, there is a high likelihood of frost delays. Please call the Pro Shop to verify starting times, but realize that they are making an educated guess. (If they say the delay is one hour, it may only be 1/2 hour.)
As part of your registration fee, you are automatically enrolled in our league’s weekly events. Our league offers members the opportunity to participate in weekly events and compete for Pro Shop “chits”. Each event is flighted so league members are grouped with other league members in their own handicap range (usually within 3 divisions). This allows every league member the opportunity to win. Winnings (chits) are distributed int he Pro Shop and can be used to purchase Pro Shop merchandise.
Hole in One
Any hole in one made during league play (April 29 – September 23) will be paid the amount in the hone-in-one kitty. If no one makes a hole in one this year that money will carry over to the 2018 season and another $25 will be added to the kitty.
Closest to the Pin
The Pro Shop sponsors a weekly Closest to the Pin contest, which costs $1 to enter – payable before teeing off.
Scoring Weekly Events
- When filling out your scorecard, make it easy on the events committee members who score the event by entering all information needed as legibly as possible.
- Please use one scorecard per two players in your foursome (2 cards total per foursome). Each card should have one player (first and last name) in the top section and one in the bottom section to leave room for the committee to make any marks necessary for scoring.
- Putt out every hole
- If you have a “disaster” and need to pick up or enter an “X” for a hole, you will be withdrawn from the event unless that hole would not be counted in the event.
- Enter the actual score for each hole (not the net score))
- The Events Committee will be responsible for adjusting scores for event purposes
- Each card mush be signed and attested by each player prior to being deposited in the scorecard box.
To provide a fair playing experience for all members of our league, it is important that all players post every golf score during the season. It is the responsibility of each player to post their own rounds in the handicap system computer located near the information board in the clubhouse.
Check with the Pro Shop or use the handicap guide located by the computer if you need help adjusting your score.
Note: Please be sure to enter your scores from other courses too.
All league events will be played form the Red Tees. You can choose to play the entire round from the Yellow Tees, but you will not receive any additional handicap strokes for the league event.
All league events are played in accordance with the USGA Rules of golf as well as any local rules that are published by the course professional. The following are some reminders of how the Rules of Golf are applied in specific situations on the course:
- If your approach shot hits the bank and rolls back into the hazard, you must hit over the hazard again (See Rule 26-1 Relief for Ball in Water Hazard)
Throughout the Course: If you are in doubt about the correct procedure you may, without penalty, play a second ball. When you do this, you must announce your intention to your playing companions and indicate which ball you intend to score with. Note the scores for both balls on your card (even if they are the same score) and report the situation to the club professional or Rules Committee after the round for a decision.
- If your ball strikes the power line you must play another ball without penalty (see Rule 33-8 Local Rules).
- Any local rules for “Course Under Repair” or other conditions will be posted on the information board and at the Pro Shop.
- After hitting two (2) balls into the hazard, yo may drop your ball on the other side of the hazard, taking two penalty strokes. This rule was adopted to speedup play and does not apply during the Club Championship.
- If you hit your ball in the river on #3, drop your ball in the “drop area” on the other side of the hazard, taking a one stroke penalty.
Check with Eric, our club Pro, or ask a board member.
